This craft uses a special woodprint technique invented in Hida-city, Gifu.

First, the fabric is dyed using a wood print from Hida, then it is steamed at a high temperature as a dye-fixing treatment. Then the fabric is stuffed with rice chaff.  Finally, it is hand stitched to various animal shapes. Everything is done by hand.

The all natural non-toxic dye and natural stuffing makes this a favorite for little kids and babies.  Safe and colorful - a favorite among adults as well.  

Spot clean with a small brush with warm soapy water. Air dry.
